AdonisJS Framework

The Node.js Framework that prefers developer joy and stability over anything else.

AdonisJS is a fully-featured backend framework for Node.js. The framework is created from ground-up with strong emphasis on developer ergonomics and ease of use.

It is one of the rarest framework in the Node.js community that ships with a suite of first party packages that helps you create and ship products without wasting hundreds of hours in assembling different npm packages.


Following are some hand-picked features from the framework core and first party packages.

  • HTTP layer with support for routing, middleware, session, secure cookies, and a lot more.
  • Support for file uploads.
  • Filesystem drive to move user uploaded files to cloud services like S3, GCS and Digital ocean.
  • Schema validator to validate forms.
  • Template engine to create traditional server render applications in no time.
  • SQL ORM built on top of Active record.
  • A fully featured authentication layer with support for sessions, api tokens, and social auth.
  • Baked-in support for testing
  • We have just scratched the surface. AdonisJS has a lot more that you usually need when building robust applications.
